ball-and-stick model 3D models with sticks to represent bonds and spheres to represent atoms.
tetrahedron a solid having four plane triangular surfaces; a triangular pyramid
tetrahedral molecule a molecule with a symmetrical shape, with one atom exactly in the center.
electron domain the space between atoms occupied by the electrons, often shown as a shaded region
electron domain theory also called VSEPR theory, the tendency for electron pairs to be as far apart from one another as possible.
pyramidal molecule when all the hydrogen atoms are located on one side of a single atom.
bent molecule describes a molecule with two bonded pairs and two lone pairs where the two bonded pairs are on the same side of the central atom.
linear molecule when all the atoms are in a straight line
point molecule when there are no bonded pairs, only lone pairs
triagonal planar when the three electron domains spread out into the shape of a flat triangle
space-filling model 3D Model where there is no space between atoms. Instead, bonded atoms are shown slightly overlapping.
receptor site theory molecules have specific shapes that will fit only certain receptor sites
gas the form of matter that conforms to the size and shape of its container
